Hello. I'd like to request a a feature, that I'd love to see in Mozilla Firefox for desktop (Windows, Mac and Linux). I'd like to have an option to play internet video (especially youtube) in the picture in picture mode. So that it remained displayed on my screen while I do something else. Is there any chance to get it?

Jnk

Was using Lubuntu for years on old hardware, then OS got corrupted. Chgd Distro to "AntiX" which worked for a few weeks, then FF quit loading Tags (blue dot just goes back & forth but no load). Bought a new computer meantime but would like to keep old stuff running and most of all clean out the anti-captialist propaganda garbage than landed in my FF synch account, including loops. An add-in that kills loops and moves all bookmarks to the bookmarks bar would be helpful. Presumably it was 'AntiX' that put the propaganda in my FF bookmarks, but bookmarks, if a directed graph, seems susceptible to loops and should have defenses against loops so once garbage like Anti-X's gets in, it can be cleaned out. Cryptically, my FF account asked me today to verify my home country (!) -- which I did (USA). Help appreciated, but if too much trouble would like Synch account destroyed so I can start a new one with same email. Also years and years and years ago I had an early Synch account with the same email address, so if it's calusing trouble, it can all be wiped out. Having to write this from some other browser on a new computer. Thanks!

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-fonts-and-colors-websites-use

I have pinned about:preferences#content to access Colors and switch between Always or Never but a toolbar button would be much better.

There are a few addons related to this like https://addons.mozilla.org/bg/firefox/addon/toggledocumentcolors-198916/ but after firefox 57 is released they would probably not work and most of them are too complicated.

Is it even possible to write a simple addon using web extensions for a toolbar button to simply switch between the colors defined in Prefences > Colors and the default web page colors?

i usually use firefox in fullscreen, so i overuse the 12 slots from newtab and the address bar history.

i'd like to be able to set bookmarks folders in newtab thumbnails, maybe by expanding content above first thumbnails (with a <- back button). that'd allow more organization/efficiency to my browsing.

like what you've done so far, good job!

edit: probably the wrong place for a suggestion, sorry :)

I've found that my numerous add-ons were causing Firefox 61.0.1 Stable to constantly freeze and crash on my Inspiron 7558. For now, I always start Firefox in Safe Mode so all the add-ons and themes are disabled for a seamless and reliable Firefox experience on it. It's an inconvenience that I have to tell Firefox to start in Safe Mode once all the add-ons are trying to load. I can disable the add-ons one at a time, but I don't want to. Instead, I'll keep using Firefox in Safe Mode until at least December 11, 2018, when Firefox 64.0 comes.

Despite incessant FF versions/updates and obvious complaints and demands from FF users, FF Quantum fails to provide FF users with simple settings for changing font/font style/font size of FF tabs/bookmarks/toolbars! Prior to Quantum FF57, the easy to use add-on Theme Font & Size Changer worked but yet despite FF user complaints, no Quantum version (now FF62!!!!!!!) integrates the accessibility features and functionality of such add-on. We need FF tabs in arial black font, e.g.! Inexcusable! Pisses us off! Time to switch browsers!

I couldn't find the suggestion box so I'm posting here. I think it would be a good idea to put another option under "Default Search Engine Choose the default search engine to use in the address bar and search bar" to have the option of making the default search engine for the search bar different from the default search engine for the address bar. As of right now you have two search bars that use the same search engine by default and waiting for the drop down to appear to change the search engine for the search bar is a pain in the ass.

On desktop, there is ZERO feedback that a download has started. This is a core UI element and shouldn't be relegated to add-ons or keeping the download window on screen at all times. Most users have a hard enough time tracking where a download was saved, let alone not knowing that a download even occurred to go looking for a file.

I am having trouble downloading PDFs with Firefox.

- I know how to download the PDF as a whole and name it accordingly.

- I cannot find how to download specific, non-consecutive pages from the PDF (example: pgs. 1,3,5). I have tried selecting the "print" button and redirecting download to my PDF program (Adobe PDF). Unfortunately, this only allows me to download consecutive pages (example: pgs. 1-5).

Any ideas?

Hi, A few hours ago I cleared the last hour of recent history, FYI I checked browsing & download history, form & search history and cache when doing it but after that I realised all my closed windows and tabs were lost except the ones being opened.

In the session backup folder there is only 2 files, recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4. Actually I just checked, there is 3 now, previous.jsonlz4, but they're all pretty much the same, after I lost those windows and tabs, and the former two seem to be constantly saving themselves, not sure why, is this supposed to be happening?

Usually there were upgrade backup files such as [upgrade.jsonlz4-date] but I don't have them in [sessionstore-backups], has something changed or is there something wrong with my browser?

When I realised my closed windows were gone I immediately made a backup but it was too late, they were all after I've lost the closed tabs and windows, and there were only two files (the files constantly saving I mentioned earlier).

So how should I proceed? I want to get my session restored but the last usable session backup I've made was months ago.

Using FF 62

When I click on show all bookmarks I get the library window and can easily search for bookmarks. Unfortunately the folder is not identified. I looked at the column heading thinking I could add the folder to the columns but to my surprise... folder is not available as a column choice.

Is there any way to add FOLDER LOCATION to the columns in the bookmark library? If not, how can I submit this suggestion to Mozilla?

Is it possible to disable Typeahead on some pages? Typeahead works great 99% of the time but sometimes it interferes with an interface's keyboard shortcuts, therefore an 'exclude' list would be very handy.

A good example is Google Calendar. I want to use the keyboard shortcut to go to 'Today', which is 't'. Instead this kicks Typeahead off, searching for anything that begins with 't'.

Before the big update there were A LOT of very small but extremely useful addons; e.g. show parent folder of favourites in the bookmark manager, go to parent directory (especiall helpful when using the search there), pick an icon of your own choosing for the folders in my favourites bar - which was extremely helpful because it saved spaced (I now didn't need a label for a folder!!!!) not after the update these addons don't work anymore, and also you guys didn't implement these things by yourself - sadly I can not code, so coming up with my own addon is out of the question as well.

When viewing a picture in Firefox, it used to display the picture itself as a bookmark/favicon in its tab. That was super useful for anyone working with multiple tabs of pictures. But it stopped working somewhere between versions 62 and 63. Now it won't show anything or, at best, just the website's favicon if it's an online picture (please refer to the attached picture). How can I get that feature working again?

Note: "browser.chrome.favicons" doesn't exist in "about:config" in current version. So I guess solutions involving it won't work.

This is not an issue of being inflexible to change. Some people are unable to function without text for identification. Icons need to have three options. Text. Text under icon. Icon. This was previously available, and MUST be returned to the interface. Likewise, the ability to use pages, not tabs, and to have the tab disappear when it is a single tab, is a function that is necessary. The narrow screens that now exist lack vertical real estate, and anything that wastes that space is a fault, not a perk. Until Firefox fixes these issues, I have ceased using it, and now use other, more adaptable, browsers.

Mozillas regularily forces updates in some applications, regardless if plug-ins will run in the updated version. This mechanism is obviously not meant to be blocked by the user in any way.

For me - and I think, I am not alone - Firefox is only the browser of choice thanks to certain plug-ins. Speed, security, design, usability - Firefox and Thunderbird are worthless, if my essential plug-ins are absent.

I design my systems to be near maintenance free, so the last thing I need is a browser update that smashes everything and makes my users mad. Workarounds for the annoying screwed up update policy is costing me ever more time.

Please, can you: - build in a routine to check the availbility for selected plug-ins BEFORE updating - advanced: if there are multiple target versions, automatically select the newest one that

 supports the whole set of selected plug-ins

- ask the user if he wants an update

and first of all:

- refrain reliably from updating when the USER or ADMINISTRATOR does not want it; ask him so.

 --> Do not update just because someone clicked on 'About'

PLEASE.
